is a multimedia initiative providing audiences around the world with
information about the impact of globalization on the poverty and social
development agenda of the June 2001 Istanbul +5 meeting (the review of
the 1996 Habitat City Summit), as well as the upcoming Rio+10 review of
the 1992 Earth Summit scheduled for 2002.
UNED Forum* has produced a series of briefing sheets on key international processes underpinning the LIFE II series. All briefing sheets are available as pdf files.
short Briefing Sheets aim to outline key issues covered within each
topic and to act as sign-posting to further information sources and
official documentation. Within the confines of space, a broad-brush
approach is taken rather than a specific in-depth look at the issues.
Many issues are cross-cutting so we encourage you to investigate
audience: anyone with a general interest in sustainable development.
you have any questions regarding the information given in the briefing
sheets, please contact Jan McHarry at firstname.lastname@example.org
